Bits & Bites #8: Introduction to MetaboAnalyst

October 6


This 10-part short course series will feature in-depth topics in untargeted metabolomics such as Bayesian statistics, a deeper look into MS-DIAL, fundamental courses in mass spectrometry, lipidomics, and so many others. Each short course can be taken individually or you can select multiple Bites. Participants will gain a deeper insight into current software, methods, and pitfalls. Each session starts promptly at 9 a.m. (Pacific Time) and will take approx. 4 hours. The courses will be conducted in a highly interactive manner, with the use of freely available software and databases. The tuition is $150 USD per Bite.

This 8th course is “Introduction to MetaboAnalyst”, taught by Dr. Jeff Xia of McGill University. In this short course, we will cover how to use MetaboAnalyst 5.0, a comprehensive platform dedicated to metabolomics data analysis. There will be a brief overview of data input, processing, and general workflow to perform PCA/PLS-DA/OPLS-DA analysis in MetaboAnalyst 5.0. More importantly, this course will cover how to use different functional analysis methods such as Enrichment Analysis, Pathway Analysis, Joint Pathway Analysis, and Network Analysis. Lastly, participants will also learn how to perform biomarker analysis and statistical analysis with complex metadata.
